A Valentine Greeting

doll's valentines day

I did great little doll tea sets for valentines day with flowers on one side and hearts on the other. I also made some great bedspreads for the doll beds that were so popular at Christmas. They have great heart patterns. I am into sewing alot lately. I want to make some bunnies for Easter.

Getting ready for Valentines Day

I have been doing a few small things for Valentines Day. I love the puffed heart ornaments. I have to start back painting more furniture. That is my first priority. I do love doing the hearts and angels though.

desk for school

I found this great old desk at my son's school. They had no more use for it and had thrown it away. I had the idea that I would redo it and donate it back as a prize for an upcoming fundraiser. I think it came out great. We found a chair from the same time frame that paired up great with it. I hope they earn some money from it.

Valentines Day

Getting ready for Valentines Day. A little behind schedule. Did these pretty plaques. I am hooked on painting angels lately. I also made some bedspreads with a heart pattern for the doll beds. Believe it or not, Spring and painting bunnies is coming up fast for me.

cedar chest and trunk

I did these great two old trunks. One was a terrific cedar chest that needed a little help. The customer wanted scroll work on the trunk. She was going to put it in her bedroom and she had blue walls and brown bedding. She gave me a sample of the scroll pattern that she wanted. I love how it looks. The other trunk was for a customer that already had purchased a bed and wanted this trunk painted to match to sit at the foot of the bed. I love the shade of purple. I would like to do more things in this color.

Prayer plaques

I did these prayer plaques for a catholic school tricky tray. I love the angel one. I think I will do more of that one.
I also did a prayer plaque (no picture) of my own favorite (and made up) prayer:
Dear Lord:
Please put your arm around my shoulder
and your hand across my mouth.
That is my personal mantra.

We have a big sale going on at the store right now. We did this after Christmas last year also. We would like to clear out some of the furniture so that we can stock up with some new things for spring. Come in and see all the great deals we have right now. Get it before it's gone.
